A+U 592: SUPERNORMAL. Architecture in the Netherlands 2010–2020
This instalment examines the past decade of architectural discourse in the Netherlands. Following the global financial crisis in 2008, the construction industry faced a slowdown; what was then considered “typically” Dutch has since faded, replaced with a new, more modest attitude in the Dutch architecture scene. Across three themes, guest editor Kirsten Hannema introduces nineteen projects that are perceived as combining broader social issues, and which in turn have taken on a new form of cultural momentum, despite going relatively unnoticed in comparison with the “SuperDutch” generation. With work by NL Architects, Superuse Studios, Mecanoo, more.
